FILE - In this Sept. 14, 2017 file photo, Ivan Velasquez, commissioner of the United Nations International Commission Against Impunity, CICIG, pauses during an interview, in Guatemala City. The Colombian lawyer who led the commission starting in 2013, was forced to live outside the Central American nation due to tensions with President Jimmy Morales since 2018, but the impact of his work remains intact and although Morales was successful in putting an end to CICIG after 12 years of operations, Velásquez says he is satisfied.
